The County Hunter Web Forum

The place to discuss issues affecting county hunting, or to just ask questions

Subject: A BIG thank you to all the mobile ops who tried so hard to run counties (more)

Message: on their trips to and from the MI Mini in spite of the really poor conditions we are all experiencing. In nearly 40 years of on and off county hunting, I have never attempted to pursue it during a period of minimum solar activity so this is a brand new experience for me.

During these periods of low solar activity the MUFs all go down (at least by half to what is considered "normal" in good times) and the QSB goes way up so it is not so much about what we are unable to work (which we get used to), but rather the occasional signal from any distance that blasts across the ionosphere and becomes workable, for however brief a period of time. Your perseverance is very much appreciated!
